Help! Stop the thief!

Someone help!

Freeze! Don't move.

Grab him!

He stole my wallet!

Don't move!

- Stay right there!

- Hurry!

Don't go in there!

Why can't we go inside?

Why aren't you going in?

That place is haunted.

The lights!

See? Ghosts!

What the hell is this place?


There's no such thing as ghosts.

What the hell is this?

Can't even get a meal for this.

I'm not gonna die hungry.

You killed us!

Mr. Tang, Ms. Pan.

Ms. Pan.

You're the frontrunner

for the Film Queen Award.

Is your acceptance speech ready?

Naturally, I have to thank

the fans who have

supported me all along.

Mr. Tang,

when do you plan to

get hitched with Ms. Pan?

Mr. Tang! Mr. Tang!

Please give us a comment!

Welcome, everyone,

to the First Film Queen Award ceremony.

Mr. He,

why are we having this event?

The people love movies

and they love movie stars even more.

Especially female movie stars.

Everyone wants to know

who among the screen

goddesses out there

is the most popular one.

That's why this poll was created.

We used the Hollywood voting system.

This isn't some courtesan beauty pageant!

Now, let us welcome the five finalists

to grace the stage.

First up, box office sensation Pan Ru Yu.

Next, the youthful Cheng Yan Yan!

The romance queen, Wang Ren Mei!

The alluring He Shang Xia!

Our last finalist

may surprise some of you.

Her fame rocketed over

the past two years.

The beloved idol, Meng Si Fan!

My friends.

It's time for the moment of truth.

This envelope holds

a combination of our reader's votes

and our judges' choice.

Now, let us welcome Mr. Tang Shiyao!

And now, time to announce

the winner of the First Film Queen Award.

Pan Ru Yu!

A well-deserved award!

Just a minute!

It seems like the award committee has added

a Miss Photogenic Award.

Miss Photegenic?

That's right.

Did someone pick that up from the west?

The Miss Photogenic Award goes to...

Meng Si Fan!

Mr. Tang, please present the awards

to our Film Queens!

Ms. Pan,

care to share your feelings?

Of course, I'm honored

to be chosen as the Film Queen.

You had to share the spotlight

with Meng Sifan.

Aren't you bothered?

Of course not!

She deserves the exposure.

Ms. Meng, I wonder

what genres are you willing to do?

If given the opportunity,

any film genre

is a possibility.

Here comes Meng Si Fan!

Hurry, over there!

Mr. Tang,

was Meng's award

decided early on?

Hello, Ms. Pan.

I've just returned from France.

I've written a script.

I hope that you'll give it...

I'm not in the mood!

It was not decided from the start.

Thanks a lot.

It was a fair and transparent process.

You should be talking to Ms. Meng.

A few words, Ms. Meng.

Watch out.

- Change is inevitable.

- You're on it!

I know that audiences

like new faces,

- but a newcomer like me...

- Excuse me.

- ...still have a lotto learn from my seniors.

- Who's this guy?

- Thank you.

- Sorry. My script...

Thank you, Ms. Meng!

Would you work with

a first-time director, Ms Meng?

Ms. Meng! Are you working on a new film?

Ms. Meng!

The corpse is 180 cm tall.

The body is in ash-like gray.

Possible burn victim.

Veins are cracked.

Traces of burns on his hair.

I'd say he looks shocked.

He must've gotten quite a scare.

Hey, cutie,

is he really a burn victim?

Please call me Dr. Fei.

Phyllis will do, too.

Then you can call me Mr. Ma.

Large blocks of hematoma on his head.

So he was beaten, then burned.

No, they were caused by the heat.

We call it

a heat gelatinized

subdural hematoma.

It's normal in burn victims.

Where did the fire come from?
